David was the best friend a person could ever have.Though miles apart nothing changed.Remembering all the good times growing up makes me smile. I will miss the answering maching with David saying Greg pick-up the phone this is not a bill collector .LOL I enjoyed hearing him laugh and talk abouts his cars. You will be sincerely missed and thought about often. Until we meet again I LOVE YOU and will miss you.

Love Greg
